Use of Candles in the Interfaith Chapel Sanctuary

Candles can only be used during religious worship when the worship is led by a recognized and chapel-affiliated religious leader. Eucharistic candles, unity candles for weddings, Shabbat candles, and havdalah candles are permitted under the supervision of Interfaith Chapel chaplains or religious leaders. Oil lamps and incense sticks can be used for religious rituals under the supervision of a recognized and chapel-affiliated religious group leader. When vigils are held, electric tea lights can be used by those attending the vigil.
